Exempt Organizations

EO Radio Show

Welcome to EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource, brought to you by the Exempt Organizations Group at Farella Braun + Martel.

My name is Cynthia Rowland. I’m a business and tax partner at Farella with more than 30 years of experience advising clients on nonprofit and charity law. I help philanthropists, including private individuals as well as for-profit and nonprofit organizations, who wish to make the world a better place.

Through this podcast, our lawyers and guests will discuss a range of legal and business issues impacting the nonprofit world because we understand you work hard every day to make your community a better place to live and work. We hope you will appreciate discussions of basic legal principles, as well as in-depth technical discussions of the legal and regulatory landscape. Topical presentations and guests on EO Radio Show will focus on helping you reach a solid understanding of what it takes to organize, operate and lead an effective charitable organization that presents itself as a professional and trustworthy partner.

Starting with a key legal concept, each show will focus on an essential piece of the framework in which charities operate, and will explain how the right understanding leads to a well-functioning organization. We will also help you understand the legal world in which charities operate and will provide detailed links and connections to additional resources on the topic of the day.

We want you to think of EO Radio Show as a modern-day audio treatise on charity legal issues and the practical application of legal principles of effective operation of a charity.

EO Radio Show is for all professionals, whether you are leading, funding, advising, or operating a public charity or private foundation that aspires to be a force for good in your space. You work hard every day to make your communities and the world a better place.

We’re happy you’ve chosen to join us on this journey here or on any podcast platform.
